Thursday, March 1

Today is Thursday of WEEK 7 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 6 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit; please make sure you get it turned in by noon today at the latest. For those of you in Myth-Folklore, Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday.

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the large stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in. If you turned in an assignment on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, your assignment is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here.

New Responding groups. The blog responding groups have been shuffled around again this week so TOMORROW, Friday, that assignment will be available with new people in the groups. Let me repeat the instructions for that assignment just as a reminder: You need to comment on TWO posts at each blog. Read the ESSAY post and STORYTELLING post. If - and only if - one or both of those posts are missing, choose any two posts in the person's blog you have not read yet.

Week 7 Internet assignment. If you did not read yesterday's announcements, please make sure you take a look at that; the instructions for the Internet assignment this week are somewhat different from last week since you will be reading a STORY at the Storybooks you comment on this week.

Thursday Events on Campus. The opening reception for "A Veritable Menagerie" will take place from 5PM-7PM in the Lightwell Gallery of the Art Museum (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

March 1: Saint David's Day. Today is the feast day of Saint David (Dewi Sant in Welsh), the patron saint of Wales. You can learn more about Saint David and the Saint's David celebrations in this BBC article. Here is a depiction of Saint David in the stained glass windows of the Jesus College Chapel in Oxford, England.
